    Yes and they picked the ring out together.

    I actually asked my fiance to please ask my dad, but he called my mom instead! We live six hours away so in person wasn’t an option. And my parents are still together and everything, it’s just that he talks to my mom more. I thought it was a little odd. I don’t know if my dad wasn’t upset or not.

    I’d always hoped an engagement would include asking my fathers permission first, I feel like I should have been born in the 1800s so it’s just one of those things I imagined and wished for but…

     

    Fiance didn’t and it was for the best. My dad is not in the picture. Fiance has met him once and it was BAD. And I mean bad! My dad is on meth and has been since I was 3 so he was never in the picture, well he was but I never wanted him in the picture so when I got old enough I cut him out. So it’s useless asking my dad since A, I have no relationship with him, B, he’s crazy from all the drug use and C, he’s not even invited to the wedding so no point in asking his permission.

    Nope!  I told him I would have said no.  We’d been living together for a few years and I had zero desire for him to even tell my parents.  We had the ring made a few months prior, and we told ALL our parents at that time that the ring was being made, and that they could expect it to become official soon.  But that was the extent of it.

    My dad passed away when I was in college, but I am/was very close to both of my parents, and my husband ended up telling my mom. I don’t think he “asked”, I think he just called and told her he was planning to propose, and she was really excited (from what I heard later) and gave him some marriage advice and whatnot.  My parents were married for 33 years before my dad passed, and dh’s parents are till happily married, so I thought the whoe thing was really sweet. Aw….
